Romania’s capital – Bucharest – is slowly unveiling its historic buildings dressed in modern skin and new designs that reinterpret historical values. We’ve already taken you on a virtual tour through the Tears and Saints Restaurant and the Mechanical Workshop. Now it’s time for a new project part of the same architect’s portfolio – Studio Hermes by Corvin Cristian.
Proving that modern design is as versatile as designers can stretch it, architect Corvin Cristian designed the interiors of a restaurant/club in Bucharest – Studio Hermes. Reminiscent of a 1960s audition hall, the space was designed to respond to acoustic requirements since it’s also a platform for a variety of shows from cabaret to live bands.
Studio Hermes takes its name from an old movie theater formerly located at the same address, in Bucharest’s historical center. Keeping a mid century modern collection of design elements, the architects chose materials like onyx for the bar, velvet for the sofas, brass for lighting and walnut elements to create an attractive atmosphere. On a concrete background with exposed pipes, these details stand out to shape a contemporary interior design.
